election commission, he served as general counsel to john mccain during the senator's presidential campaigns in 2000 and again in 2008. t trevor potter is with the law firm of caplin and drysdale in washington, and he's the founding president of the campaign legal center, that's a non-partisan group committed to "representing the public interest in enforcement of campaign and media law." all very impressive, but let's face it, these days trevor potter's greatest claim to fame is as the man who keeps stephen colbert out of jail. he advised colbert on how to create his own super pac and then to set up his more clandestine 501 (c) (4). take a look. >> so how do i gets me one, trevor? >> well, lawyers often form delaware corporations, which we call shell corporations, that just sit there until they're needed. >> like, so some anonymous shell corporation? >> right. and, and i happen to have one here in my briefcase. >> let's see it. >> so -- >> okay, what's it called? >> it's called, "anonymous shell corporation." >> "anonymous shell corporation" filed in delaware? okay, i got this. so

later, and that secret tape still hurts. joining me now is msnbc contributor and author megan mccain and democratic strategist tad devine, senior adviser for kerry and gore campaigns. thank you for joining us. >> good to be here. >> tad, let me start with you. it's been over a week since the tape came out. the president, joe biden, now bill clinton are all still hammering. how damaging is this 47% comment? >> reverend, i think it was terribly damaging. what happened with that tape was after months and months of the obama campaign in battleground state after state, running ads and telling people that mitt romney doesn't care about them, mitt romney came forward himself and confirmed those attacks. there's nothing more devastating and nothing more powerful in the minds of voters than to hear the words out of a candidate's mouth. i think this is a big moment in presidential politics that's a turning-point moment. i think people will remember it all the way to election day. i think after the election they're going to look back and say this is a point when romney hurt himself and hurt him

john mccain being a man of some serious patriotic spirit when he stood up and refused to go along with the woman who said barack obama is an arab. to me, those are the moments that makes me love politics. it's like a george stevens movie where someone blows you away. the guy on the other side tends to be the hero of the moment. >> there's a lot of nobility in john mccain the man and i read his books and did a lot of research. i think he's an interesting and conflicting characters. all the characters john mccain, steve smith, sarah palin are almost shakespearean in their adventure. i wanted all the characters to have as much dimension as possible. >> one of the problems with the tea party people, they do care about their country, but the simplicity of their appeal is to thin. like sarah palin. what made her think, in your line of writing, that she should be the second most important person in the country? why would she have such limited background think she could be president? >> she was a popular governor. 80% popularity. she had taken on corruption. she had gotten money back to
